Hi everyone! It's Monica from Taylormadecards4u. It has been such fun sharing Halloween cards! But it is even more fun when you can create a Halloween card using a Non-Halloween stamp. I created this frame using the Daisy background stamp along with some frame die cuts.
I knew I wanted to make a frame, but that was as far as I had gotten. I had a new container of Nuvo embellishment sitting on my desk, so I rubbed it on my stamp and tried to stamp with it. So here is a tip, you can't stamp with Nuvo Embellishment paste. But it did leave an impression on my cardstock in some areas, so I decided to stamp right over it using my Black archival ink. It was just enough to add some great color to my frame.
From there, it was just a matter of getting out my die cuts and creating my frame along with my pumpkin focal point.
As added embellishments, I added some of the Halloween clippings and numbers from the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello and happy Saturday!
Today I'm sharing a card for a new baby girl.
My friend commissioned me to make a card for her coworker and sent me a picture of the nursery for inspiration.
Here's Charlie's nursery. Pretty sweet isn't it?!
This bear certainly lives up to his name...Sweet Teddy.
I absolutely love this verse. It's just so perfect for a little girl.
Hello stampers - Nancy here and today I have a card that is all about October! Take a look...
This beautiful pumpkin filled with fall foliage is called Elegant Pumpkin
and can be found here.
There are many pumpkin stamps out there but the reason I LOVE this one is that it is not a jack-o-lantern, or cute, but has a nice elegance to it. Look at the luscious blooms that fill this pumpkin! Everything screams fall and this is perfect for a fall birthday or even a wedding card. It's a really nice size too - about 3.5 x 3.75 - enough to make a statement on a card.
I enjoyed coloring this up - I used copic markers and went to town with the colors of autumn. Lots of orange, yellow and green with touches of red and brown. I found some old Basic Grey paper in shades of orange and love the bottom design - a perfect elegant pattern for this stamp.
Even though I used patterned paper and a fancy edge tag, I can see this image on a clean and simple card as well, The overall design is so nice it can stand on its own.
I hope you will hop on over to the IBFS store
and take a look at this and all the fall/winter stamps that are available. I'm sure you will find something to your liking!
Thanks for stopping by today!
